Inputs and Outputs Notes
Retro Design: The Fujifilm X100S digital camera, like its
predecessor X100, is
designed to look like a classic 35mm film camera with many of the features of a
high-quality DSLR. It has a synthetic leather-wrapped body with a die-cast
magnesium top and base, and precision milled metal rings and dials. The fixed
focus lens is protected by an aluminum lens cap.
Upgrades: The X100S features the new APS-C X-Trans CMOS II
sensor and improved EXR Processor II. With an improved Fujinon 23mm F2 fixed
lens, the X100S delivers fast autofocus speeds of up to 0.08 seconds, 25%
increased image resolution, and 30% reduced noise over the first generation
23mm Lens: The X100S is equipped with an F2 23mm fixed focal
length Fujinon lens. This is equivalent of a 35mm lens in 35mm photography. The
all-glass lens configuration (6 groups/8 elements) includes a double-sided
aspheric lens, Super EBC (electron beam coating) to reduce ghosting, and a
9-blade aperture diaphragm for pleasingly defocused background effects. The
built-in ND filter, equivalent to 3 f-stops, reduces the amount of light to 1/8
for those situations where you want to shoot at a slow shutter speed or keep a
wide aperture. The lens has a focus range of 2.6' to infinity in normal mode and
as close as 3.9" (10 cm) in Macro mode.
Note: The camera does not allow for interchangeable
The X100S has a 2.8" color LCD
monitor featuring approximately 460,000 dots and approximately 100% horizontal
and vertical coverage in the shooting mode. When shooting, you can choose from a
standard display, a custom display, or a detailed display.
Hybrid Viewfinder: The camera is equipped with a Hybrid Viewfinder, which is switchable between an optical viewfinder and
electronic viewfinder. As you bring the camera up to your face, an eye sensor in
the viewfinder will switch automatically to viewfinder mode. A built-in diopter
allows you to adjust the viewfinder to your eyesight, either with or without
glasses. Details of each type of viewfinder include the following:
- Optical Viewfinder (OVF): The Reverse Galilean Optical Viewfinder offers a wide field of view (approx 26°)
for maximum clarity with no shutter time lag. It has a integrated 2,360,000
dot LCD panel to display shooting information. It has
approximately 90% frame coverage and 0.5x magnification.
- Electronic Viewfinder (EVF): The 0.48" High-Definition Electronic
Viewfinder provides 100% coverage and detailed shooting information with its
2,360,000 dots of resolution. You can preview focus, depth of field,
exposure, and white balance before you shoot, and view the photo instantly
Recording Media: Still images and movies
can be recorded onto optional SD, SDHC, or SDXC memory cards. The X100S also has an internal memory of approximately
24 MB to allow you to store a few test
images in case your memory card is full.
Still Image Quality: The X100S records still images in JPEG
format in 3:2, 16:9, and 1:1 aspect
ratios in three sizes and two compression ratios (Fine and Normal). In addition, RAW images can be
recorded from the raw, uncompressed image data from the camera's image sensor.
RAW format images must be processed on a computer using the supplied RAW File
Converter application software. You can also shoot a RAW + JPEG image at the
same time, with separate RAW and JPEG files recorded and stored.

HD Movies: The X100S can record Full HD movies 1920 x 1080
in MOV format (H.264 standard with LPCM stereo sound) at 60 fps and 30 fps.
Individual movies files cannot exceed 10 minutes in length, regardless of the
capacity of the memory card.
Motion Panorama: The camera is capable of taking panoramic images by
panning the camera through one of two angle settings. As you pan the camera,
multiple frames are recorded and automatically stitched together in the camera
to create the panoramic image. The Motion Panorama options are:
- Motion Panorama 120°:
- Horizontal: 6440 x 1440
- Vertical: 2160 x 6440
- Motion Panorama 180°:
- Horizontal: 9600 x 1440
- Vertical: 2160 x 9600
Shooting Modes: The Fujifilm X100S lets you set the shutter
speed and aperture automatically or manually. The shutter speed and aperture
settings combine for four shooting modes:
|Shooting Mode ||Shutter Speed1 ||Aperture2 |
|Program AE ||Automatic ||Automatic |
|Shutter Priority ||Manual ||Automatic |
|Aperture Priority ||Automatic ||Manual |
|Manual ||Manual ||Manual |
1Shutter Speed Options: Auto, 1/4000, 1/2000, 1/1000, 1/500, 1/250,
1/125, 1/60, 1/30, 1/15, 1/8, 1/4, Time (selectable 1/2 to 30 seconds), Bulb
2Aperture Options: Auto, f/2, f/2.8, f/4, f/5.6, f/8, f/11, f/16
ISO Sensitivity: You can manually set the camera's sensitivity
200 to ISO 6400 in 1/3 EV increments. Extended settings are equivalent to ISO 100
(Low), ISO 12800 (High) or ISO 25600 (High). The Auto settings will adjust the
sensitivity settings according to the shooting conditions with maximum ISO of
400, 800, 1600, 3200, or 6400. The higher the sensitivity setting, the better the camera is at
reducing blur in poor lighting conditions, however, high settings can result in
more noise in the recorded images.
White balance is used to preserve natural colors under different types of
lighting. You can select
Auto, Direct Sunlight, Shade, "Daylight" fluorescent lamps, "Warm White" fluorescent
lamps, "Cool White" fluorescent lamps, Incandescent light and
Underwater (requires waterproof case). In addition, you can measure for a white
balance value or display and select from a list of color temperatures.
Film Simulation: The X100S can simulate the effects of
different kinds of film, including black-and-white. You can select one of the
- Provia/Standard: standard color reproduction
- Velvia/Vivid: a high-contrast palette of saturated colors, suited
for nature photos
- Astia/Soft: a soft-toned palette of less-saturated colors
- PRO Neg Hi: offers additional contrast. Recommended for
- PRO Neg Std: a soft-toned palette for enhanced skin
tones. Recommended for studio portraits.
- Monochrome: standard black-and-white
- Monochrome + Y Filter: black-and-white pictures with slightly
increased contrast; tones down the brightness of the sky
- Monochrome + R Filter: black-and-white picture with increased
contrast; also tones down the brightness of the sky
- Monochrome + G Filter: softens skin tones in black-and-white
- Sepia: takes pictures in sepia tone
Color Space: Depending upon how you intend to use the image,
you can choose the output color space at the general sRGB setting or the broader
color rendition of Adobe RGB.
Exposure Compensation: Using the dedicated Exposure
Compensation dial on the top of the camera, you
can alter the exposure from the value suggested by the camera, making pictures
brighter or darker. You can adjust the exposure a total of 13 steps from -2.0 to +2.0 EV in 1/3
EV steps. Exposure compensation is available in all shooting modes except
Continuous Shooting: You can capture motion in a series of
pictures using the Continuous Shooting mode. You can choose from frame rates of
approximately 6 frames per second or 3 fps. Maximum number of frames is 31 and
Self-timer: The camera gives you the choice of a 10-second
or 2-second self timer. The 10 second self timer is recommended for self
portraits, while the 2-second self timer is used to reduce blur caused by the
camera moving when the shutter button is pressed.
Auto Focus: In most cases, the X100S uses contrast-detection TTL
(through the lens) Auto Focusing. You can choose between two AF Modes: Single or
Continuous. You can also focus manually using the focus ring on the lens.
Flash Modes: The
X100S has a built-in flash with an effective range of 1.6' to
29.5'. Red-eye removal minimizes the
"red-eye" effect, and is available for each flash mode. You can choose from the following flash modes:
- Auto: flash fires
automatically as required by the shooting conditions

optional remote flash units.
- External Flash: for when an optional third-party flash unit
Optional External Flash: The X100S has a hot shoe for adding
optional external flash units, such as EF-20, EF-42, or
The X100S uses 256-segment, TTL (through-the-lens) metering, where the camera
automatically assesses the scene and selects the optimum exposure. You can
select from three metering options: Multi, Spot, or Average.
Viewing Images: Images can be
played back one-at-a-time or in a variety of multi-frame views. Multi-frame
options include a side-by-side two-frame display
(with smaller thumbnails of the previous and next frames, 9-image grid (3 x 3)
and a 100-image grid (10 x 10) of micro-thumbnails. In the 9- and 100-image grid
views, the highlighted image is slightly enlarged.
